Fresh Coat Friday!

Howdy Friends! It is hard to believe it is already Friday again... time is just flying this summer. As I have already mentioned, this week has been beyond hectic with the WhiteBerry move so I apologize if you submitted your Fresh Coat Friday email and didn't get a response yet! I tried to include everyone I had up until yesterday evening but there might be one or two of you that didn't get an email but still made it up on here today. I also had a HUGE response with tons of great projects, as you will shortly see, so I had to keep the descriptions to a minimum. But many of the posts come from bloggers and you can catch more of the progress of each project on the linked blogs.

As always PLEASE link in your fabulous Fresh Coat projects with our link generator! And don't forget to grab a button (just to the left of this post) if you were featured!!!

Thanks again for sharing everyone, now let's get busy:


Alex brought new life to this table with a full sanding, then painting the legs white. LOVE the whole look!





Jess was given this bed as a teenager, but made it feel much more at home in her white condo with a new coat of paint!






Tiffany found this mirror for $5, spent $3.25 in hardware and definitely made some lemonade out of a lemon!




Donna found this shelf in a dumpster (who would throw that out?!). Love the final product!!





Rachel scored this mirror on craigslist and made it the perfect entryway mirror with a little glossy paint.





Becky took this $20 table and made it a real find! A glass insert lets her change paper or fabric lining whenever the mood strikes.




Jenny scooped up a pair of these lamps, seeing tons of potential. Who would've thought to paint the ceramic?




Jen might have forgot the before shot, but the after is stunning!



These two chair makeovers come from Jenny. Both of them turned out great and look like professional jobs!




Ann Marie's dresser makeover for her daughter.





Angel's new bedside tables: love the hidden drawer!





Jana Marie is still in highschool, but she is full of creativity! She just finished this dresser for her new bedroom when her family moved recently. Great work!



Kathleen's nightstand makeover: great finishing touches.





Andrea's chair is a family heirloom that now matches her sweet new daughter's room perfectly!





These next two transformations come from Tiffany, one dresser was altered to make it work for her TV console, the other has some charming datails.






Kacey's dining table-turned-coffee table. Just gorgeous!



Karen took her bland entry way and made it fabulous with a handful of inexpensive projects and thrift store finds.

Before:

After:



Melissa's desk makeover: once Grandfather's, but now totally Melissa's.




Jen's Father-in-law snagged this patio set for free, fixed it up and Jen gave it some fresh paint!






Kim's front door transformation: black to peach! The new color is so fun~



Now let's see what you have been up to!!

Lovely Little Nest said...

These are really great transformations! I think the patio set is my favorite ~ partly because they took something that cost nothing {not including paint and labor} and turned it into something fresh and new!

You have some VERY talented readers :)
